Featured Dog: Mona – ADOPTED!


This little lovebug is Mona, a 3-4 years old Jack Russell Terrier.


When I first met her, she would always try to get my attention from her kennel. She’d wag her tail madly and loved it when I noticed and gave her a little treat (shhhh, don’t tell the other dogs!).


It was a while before I got to walk her, and I think she may have been a favorite of other volunteers. I was about to see why…


Mona is a dream to walk- she doesn’t pull, looks back at you often, and loves coming back to you for affection when you stop (or in my case, sneeze). Despite her eager pleas for attention from her kennel, Mona actually has wonderful self control and acts very much a mature adult dog.


That’s not to say that she doesn’t have any playfulness- she plays fetch like a champ and enjoys retrieving the toys you throw for her!


Post-play time for her is a nice snuggle on your lap. I think a couch or a comfortable chair will be a requirement, because once she sits on your lap, you won’t want to move. Mona is one of those rare dogs who would make a good napping and walking companion.



She gets along with other dogs, and would be a wonderful addition to any household with older children.


If you are interested in Mona, please come visit her in Kennel 38. For more information on Mona, please contact doginfo@apsofdurham.org or leave a comment below.
